A new approach for laboratory assignments in the first C/C++ programming course is introduced. An easy-to-use low-cost ARM SOC computer module with a parts kit is used in the first C/C++ programming class taught by the School of ECE. Each student purchases a processor module along with a parts kit. A cloud based C/C++ compiler is used for software development and breadboards are used with breakout boards containing common I/O devices. Simple C++ APIs are provided for all I/O hardware interfaces along with code examples for each I/O device. Extensive wiki pages and short videos are used to provide documentation.
